"Selva morale e spirituale"
Christmas Music for the 380th Anniversary
of Claudio Monteverdi's Death


On November 28, 1643, one of the most outstanding composers in history, Claudio Monteverdi, passed away.


Today primarily known as a significant innovator in the world of opera, he worked as a Kapellmeister in St. Mark's Basilica in Venice during the last decades of his life, leaving behind an extensive legacy of sacred music. The collection "Selva morale e spirituale," published in 1641, two years before his death, is an impressive monument to his later sacred compositions.


To honor the 380th anniversary of Monteverdi's death, the Bremen ensemble "Musica getutscht" presents a special performance of his Christmas motets from "Selva morale e spirituale." In addition to Monteverdi's music, instrumental pieces by contemporaries such as Biagio Marini and Dario Castello from the early Baroque Venice will be heard.


With these concerts, we aim to celebrate Claudio Monteverdi's work and acknowledge the timeless beauty and significance of his music, which continues to touch and inspire the hearts of listeners even after 380 years.
